FreeBSD all the way!

I used to run a gateway/firewall with freeBSD up until about a year ago when I purchased a hardware appliance to handle that. I now have a freeBSD machine running on vmware as a mail server (6.2). I also had a triple booted laptop that had freeBSD 5 until recently.

I've been using FreeBSD since 2.21-Release, but nowadays I prefer OpenBSD.
I still have 6.2 and 5.5 on two systems.

OpenBSD is what I use on a server. I manage my OpenBSD boxes with my Mac running OSX.

I clicked in figuring I would vote for OpenBSD, but then Mac OS X was on the list. What could I do?

I use OpenBSD for firewalls, bridges and routers on our network.

I have been a Mac user since 1985, and my home computers and desktop are all Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. I manage all our servers, network equipment, etc. from my Mac. Our main servers are Solaris 9. We also have some massively parallel SGI compute servers that are running Suse.
